Hi All,

Selling the best part of my program as i finally caved and am making the switch to turbos hoping to run 6s. This blower has not only performed, it's been a huge eye catcher at NMRA events, track outings and car shows. So much so, it helped my car be featured in the Oct 2023 issue of Fastest Street Car magazine. In that article, I said the giant throttle body sitting at the base of the windshield in my 2003 Gen 1 Coyote Swapped Cobra. It looks awesome!

This is a complete 3.6 Liquid Cooled Kenne Bell kit for the Gen 1 coyote. The supercharger is BRAND NEW. I've been spinning it pretty hard so I sent it into Kenne Bell to get checked out prior to selling, we'll it wasn't so Kenne Bell replaced the entire supercharger for me (paperwork included from last week).

I was running in the NMRA 8.60 class. On my car, this blower was a consistent mid 8 second performer for 2 years. 10 consecutive passes in the 8s and the last 3 passes were 8.63, 8.56, 8.40 @ 170.

The intercooler is the Big Gun intercooler and the opening has been ported as you can tell in the photos. My IATs on my last 8.40 @ 170 pass started at 78° and finished at 121° at the stripe while in Gainesville, FL.

Quick fact on hood clearance. The top of the front of the blower is 9.5" above in the intake runners on the coyote. The factory terminator hood was a few inches from clearing (picture below) so I ended up using a VFN 4" cowl hood that has more clearance than I need and my K member is not lowered.

To the numbers...

This is $10,500 worth of equipment. I am including:
- BRAND NEW 3.6 Liquid Cooled Supercharger.
- Big Gun Twin 106mm throttle body.
- Big Gun Intercooler.
- Big Gun Intake manifold.
- 10 Rib pulley drive system (complete ex balancer)
- 3 KB pulleys.
- KB pulley removal tool.
- 4 Blower belts.
- 4 Alternator drive belts.
- Boost bypass.
- Brand New KB supercharger oil.
- Original KB box.

I'm asking $6,200 and I'll leave shipping out on this one for now. Something we can figure out later or I'm happy to meet within reasonable driving distance.

I tried to capture everything in the pictures. I have tons of videos of engine running, passes, media photos etc. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you have.

Thank you,

Colin

Good eye. Close. That's a 70 LT-1. There is another 70 350/350 next to it that's white. I'll be sinking my teeth into those while my Cobra is at Ron Rhodes for chassis work and I have more garage space for a few months.

If you have interest in those or parts for them, shoot me a PM. They will also be for sale soon.

Oh yeah that's bigtime! The big blocks command such a premium. It's awesome to see those go across the auction block when they are done well, they still bring big money.

This is an awesome blower setup for the right person, at a great price! OP, I read your magazine article- impressive build and results. I’d be interested in this setup if I didn’t already have a TT system on my Coyote. I know there is a lot of temptation around turbos, but the simplicity and torque of your KB setup should not be taken for granted. GLWS!

Thanks for the shoutout! I mean it when I said, it was the favorite part of my program. I am sad to see it go for turbos. I said I would never do it but too late now. Already sold most of the combination, this is the final piece. I do think it would go deep into the 7s with some more fine tuning and the non wagon wheel pulley up top!

Have you listed this on some of the Coyote groups on Facebook? I assume there are some big dogs there who would be interested in this awesome setup. Right now given an oiling issue I have with my TT setup, I’m even tempted… but I’ve come too far to turn back now!

I hear you! It's a good idea. I have put it on some of the coyote and yellow bullet FB groups. Couple guys just like yourself thus far. Half way through another build or SBF build so big endeavor to switch now.

These things are expensive. I get it. Alot of parts trade at the $1-2k and lower level but hard to ask for a PayPal for several thousand dollars when can swipe a credit card for it new.

Pretty sure I could send an invoice through PayPal so the buyer could use a credit card though if it would help with the sale.
